I've had a busy few days but managed to get a swim in each day for the last three days. On Thursday, I wasn't particularly tired but I was slow. Our coach even asked me if I was feeling okay. I missed all of warm-up because I was trying to navigate some new on-line pre-authorization system for a prescription I wrote. It seemed like it should be easy but was not. I should have just warmed-up and then started rather than just jumped in the set. Friday I did about 2/3s of the work-out and was still struggling a bit. Today, I felt much better. I met with my oncologist on Thursday and I've had a partial response to the treatment-- all the masses in my liver are shrinking and the tumor marker is in the normal range. Unfortunately, my normal liver is also taking a hit so I will have my medications adjusted and start back on the new regimen on Monday. I was told that the main side effect is fatigue. So, I'll plan to take it pretty easy but still want to keep trying to swim 3-4 times a week because I feel much better and sleep much better when I exercise. Until next time.

    I am happy to hear the results from last week show the masses to be shrinking and hope the new meds help the balance with your liver. A lot of times when I don't feel like swimming I just say to myself to just go and swim easy. A slow swim is still better than no swim!
